HOOKED ON PAGE ONE; COMMITTED ON PAGE 20:


by

Donna Levin

Donna Levint If you write, "The fire started at midnight," you've earned the reader's attention for two or three pages. By page 20, though, you want the reader to be even more interested. I'll talk about that so-called "narrative hook" but concentrate on how important it is to identify your main character(s), and their main problem(s), while you let the reader know what the novel is going to be about.
